I see. Well, perhaps TWC will come back and enlighten us about that comment, unless of course, you want to take a chance.

Would be better if TWC explained the comment but think it's a follow on from comments made on another thread? I could be wrong....

it could very well be sir, but, at this point, we are both engaging in conjecture, only TWC knows what she meant for sure and like I said, perhaps she will enlighten us all with a brilliant answer.

seemed to me an attempt at return fire.

in the spirit of free and open discourse, I'm going to have to admit it wasn't too shabby.

on a scale of 10, I'd have to rate it at least a 7.

of course,
IMO only,

There’s no conjecture, Hired Dog. The dog handler in the video walks very tensely and weirdly. I’ve seen sport dog handlers like this before and I’m still confused why they walk so bizarrely. I think maybe they’re so nervous about the competition, the judging, and their dog not passing that they don’t realize they tense up so badly. But I’m not going to lie, TWC’s post was pretty funny.

Crazystyna, until we hear the reason of that post from the person who posted it, its conjecture and I have a reason to believe that it goes a little deeper.
There can be many reasons why a person walks like this, its part nerves, part training of the dog to heel and how close to the handler it is, having to hold your arm away from your body as you walk to avoid hitting the dog in the head.
TWC and Fred gave answers way off the left field, funny, yes, accurate, absolutely not.

If they wore kilts (properly), mal-fitting underwear wouldn't be a problem.
